Founded in 2000, the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) is a resource for professionals who want to develop and advance their careers by helping their organizations successfully manage risks and protect their data. The IAPP is the largest and most comprehensive global information privacy community and resource.
Once the GPPR takes effect in May 2018, among its mandates is the requirement to appoint knowledgeable Data Protection Officers (DPOs) tasked with monitoring compliance, managing internal data protection activities, training data processing staff, conducting internal audits and more. There’s a lot to know, there’s a lot at stake, and there’s a lot of opportunity for privacy professionals with the right training and education.
